Leadership Development for Technology Integration:
Developing an Effective NSDL Teacher Workshop Model

The Math Forum @ Drexel has a grant from the National Science Foundation to introduce middle grades teachers to software tools for teaching mathematics from the NSDL (National Science Digital Library).

The Math Forum has engaged teachers as collaborators and co-researchers in novel and exciting ways over a dozen years. As an example, you might look at the BRAP Project where teachers worked as educational researchers and co-authored a video-paper that they presented at a workshop at MIT. See also our other summer leadership institutes.

Through this new NSDL program we wish to both introduce new technology resources to the broad audience of middle grades mathematics teachers and support those individuals who would like to become leaders in this community, conducting local workshops or offering online support. In the first year of this project, we conducted several face-to-face workshops and we are now offering an online version.

Currently the $100 workshop fees are paid for participants by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). For a fee of $25 to cover administrative costs and a completed copy of this form, 1.5 Continuing Education Units (15 contact hours) can be provided in the form of a certificate from the Drexel University School of Education to any participants who meet the minimum requirements.
